Mass Obligation Dispensation Lifted by Diocese on July 1
As of July 1, 2021, the general dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation for the general public will cease. However, the dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation remains in place for those at serious medical risk. Serious medical risk refers primarily to those with a chronic health condition, those providing direct care for the vulnerably ill, or those with a compromised immune system or other health condition that leaves them unable to be vaccinated. For more information, please go to the Diocese of Tucson website here.
Our Mother of Sorrows will also discontinue the drive up Communion beginning July 4.
Those requesting Communion to the Homebound can call the Parish office at 520-747-1321.
Current COVID Protocols
For those people who have been fully vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control
has recommended that masks and social distancing are no longer required.
Beginning the weekend of May 22nd & 23rd, all Masses,
except for the 9 am Mass,
will no longer have social distancing and face mask requirements.
Please remember those whose lives were lost to the pandemic, those who mourn,
and the vulnerable who walk with us still.
Faith Sharing Offerings
There are many faith sharing offerings available online.
We will keep this updated so you can find ones that appeal to you.
